In late 1991 and early 1992, newspaper reporter Linda Godfrey wrote about a rash of reported werewolf sightings along a small stretch of road in Elkhorn, Wisconsin. The story exploded nationwide, as tales of The Beast of Bray Road--a massive wolf that walked upright on its hind legs--captivated audiences across America. Linda soon discovered that sightings like these have occurred across the continent, and the globe, for a very long time. Encounters with Dogman--as the creature is often called--are terrifying, and although usually brief, they leave witnesses with a lifetime of questions. Join us as we discuss the Dogman phenomenon, and are joined by Linda Godfrey, who has written several books on the topic and is the foremost authority on Dogman, for an eye-opening interview.Resources:Witness stories told in the episode are from the books listed below:Real Wolfmen: True Encounters in Modern America by Linda GodfreyAmerican Monsters: A History of Monster Lore, Legends, and Sightings in America by Linda GodfreyMonsters Among Us: An Exploration of Otherworldly Bigfoots, Wolfmen, Portals, Phantoms, and Odd Phenomenon by Linda Godfrey Underground PodcastNot Alone PodcastExpanded Perspectives PodcastDogman Encounters RadioMusic:Haunted Places by Alex LisiDark Tension Rising Music by Royalty Free ZoneHeavy by Huma-HumaDead Man's Secrets by SilencydeMyths and Mysteries theme is Circles in the Sky by Cinematic Waves.

Illustration from Algernon Blackwood's classic horror tale "The Wendigo" in the June, 1944 edition of Famous Fantastic Mysteries. The Algonquian tribes of Canada believed that a creature called the Wendigo could convince a person to become a cannibal. Others believed that committing the act of cannibalism would turn a person into a Wendigo, doomed to a long lifetime of unquenchable hunger for human flesh. This episode tells two true stories of the Wendigo, and the deadly effects that these beliefs had on Native American communities.Resources: by Kevin MacLeodCircles in the Sky by Cinematic WavesTempting Fate by AudionautixPachabelly by Huma-HumaDhaka by Kevin MacLeodEagle Rock by Wes HutchinsonAll used under the Creative Commons License.

He was said to jump over carriages, walls, and even houses. He assaulted women, children, and men, including armed soldiers.

Today, we think of wolves as wild cousins of our pet dogs; we go to the zoo and see scrawny canines snoozing in the sun or jogging laps around their enclosures. But just a few hundred years ago, wolf attacks on humans were commonplace, and the mythical Big Bad Wolf has more roots in reality than you may realize. In this 3-in-1 episode, you'll hear about The Beast of Gevaudan, The Werewolf of Bedburg, and Jean Grenier, the teenage werewolf: three true stories in which monstrous wolves--and men who claimed to be wolves--slaughtered men, women, and children, and terrorized entire towns. CAUTION: this episode contains descriptions of graphic violence and gore.
